Microsoft’s customer relationship management system, better known as Microsoft CRM, is a tool used by companies to organize, track, and maintain healthy relationships with its clientele. It’s not unusual for businesses to be a few updates behind the newest software. In order to migrate a CRM server to a newer version, its data will need to be extracted. There are two different ways to do this. One is to export directly out of the CRM application through its export button, the other is to export via CRM’s SQL server. When attempting to export data for a server migration, using your CRM SQL server provides significant advantages over the built in CRM exporter.
